Free Online Classes To Help You Learn New Skills For Every Interest

Unlock new achievements with Shaw Academy’s roster of online courses

What new skills have you picked up over the lockdown?

Instagram (or our frequent taps through the platform’s Stories function, at least) says that the most common answers are likely baking or home bartending or TikTok dancing. After all, what else are we going to do with all this time we now have? Entertaining as they are, there’s a limit to how much binge watching and renegading we can do (come on, we know you know the choreography). With so many days to kill within the same four walls, the only thing keeping us sane is picking up new skills and fostering the passion projects we put on the backburner.

Since we can’t go out, let’s look in instead: What skills have you always wanted to develop, but never had the chance to? 

Shaw Academy, a global learning platform, gives you the chance to do just that. Dive into Shaw Academy’s roster of comprehensive courses on various fields of study—all yours for the taking. The best parts? The classes range from finance to photography, everything is online and you get a three-month subscription with Globe Postpaid.

Calling all aspiring photographers: this is your launchpad towards your career with a camera. Master the basics of photography, familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of key photography programs like Lightroom and Photoshop and discover the dynamic world of video. Keeping up with the times, Shaw Academy also offers a Photography course for those who prefer to document moments on their mobile devices.


Is there such a thing as too much financial advice? Shaw Academy begs to differ. Invest your time and money in the right places by learning about anything and everything related to finance: Gold, Commodities Trading, Personal Budgeting, Stock Trading, Financial Trading and Investment and the ever buzzy topic of Cryptocurrency.


Not all marketing campaigns are made equal. Learn the differences across platforms and effectively speak to your audience with Shaw Academy’s Digital Marketing, Social Media Marketing, SEO, Viral Marketing and Blogging and Content Marketing courses.


Besides the baking and bartending, another hobby us homebodies have picked up is exercising. There are thousands of online workouts at our fingertips and with our mornings free for fasted cardio and our evenings vacant for yoga, all it takes is a few clicks and a spoonful of effort to get back into the fitness game. However, there’s more to health and fitness than just working out. Shaw Academy sheds the light on the full health curriculum with courses on Fitness & Weight Loss, Nutrition, Nutrition on a Budget, Personal Health and Sports & Exercise Nutrition.
